UPDATE: Ubisoft Responds to Assassin’s Creed: Rising Phoenix Rumor

Just 3 days ago we were the only ones to bring you the Assassin’s Creed: Rising Phoenix Fact or Fiction post which aimed to dispel an upcoming rumor spawned by an image suggesting that there is a new PlayStation Vita game from Ubisoft titled Assassin’s Creed: Rising Phoenix. You can read the story of how and where it was discovered here.

Now the major mainstream media has caught wind of a second image (some of them still haven’t seen the first image yet). You can click here to enlarge that image now. While some publications are accepting the rumor at face value, others are skeptical and have suggested that the title may be the name of an Assassin’s Creed film said to be in development.

When will they reveal such a game if it exists?

RealGamerNewz has sent press inquiries to PR professionals surrounding the game’s publishing house Ubisoft.

Here’s what we sent:

“Hello,

My name is Jon Ireson and I am the Editor-In-Chief of RealGamerNewz.com.
My website’s staff has obtained information we suspect to be false rumors generated by fan fiction.
Please help us to eliminate this rumor as soon as possible.
Sincerely, Jon Ireson

RealGamerNewz.com E.I.C. / Co-Founder”

We do happen to have this auto-response though, and have been told most of Ubisoft PR are currently on vacation (maybe partying with Bioware who recently went for brief vacation?):

“Bonjour,
Je serai de retour au studio d’Ubisoft MTL le 1er avril 2013.

Pour toute question relative au studio d’Ubisoft Toronto, svp contacter Jade Raymond.

A bientôt!

——————————

Hello, I will be back at Ubisoft MTL on April 1st, 2013.

Talk to you soon!

An optimist would say that April 1st we may be shown the first glimpses at this title, or you can chalk it up to a non-response. Other reps were contacted as well and have yet to reply on this matter. This is the only response we have received thus far.

Editor’s Note: RealGamerNewZ has moved web servers, some older posts can no longer be commented on and have been preserved without their images. Thank you for your understanding in this matter. This article was written by Jon Ireson on 20130308 and was last modified on 20130309 .
